Energy harvesting tags with cooperative communication capabilities are recently emerging as a viable infrastructure for internet of things (IoT) applications. This letter studies the cooperative transmission strategy for a network of energy harvesting active networked tags (EnHANTs), that is adapted to the available energy resource and identification request. We consider a network of tags to communicate with the reader either directly or by cooperating with neighboring tags. We formulate the problem as a Markov decision process (MDP). The simulation results are provided to show the performance of the cooperative transmission policy under various energy harvesting scenarios.
